In the SNACK of time: Raspberry Macaroon

Snackas of the day: Raspberry Macaroons from Canter’s Delicatessen on Fairfax.  Their macaroon is unlike any other in the city.  The base is made of a soft sugar cookie then an almond paste is piped on top and a jewel of raspberry preserves sits dazzling in the middle.  When you bite the cookie it is soft on the bottom but has a crunch up top and a spread of raspberry that will please your tastebuds.  So delicious.  I don’t drive down Fairfax unless I am prepared to stop and buy my treasured raspberry macaroons, otherwise it’s too tempting.  Lucky for me, I bought a box full yesterday.

    almond paste! que rico!! Fairfax? Is that a street? I’m from a county called Fairfax in Va, right outside of D.C.! :)

  3. Drool! I have a reputation for being a cookie monster and you’ve got my salivary glands working! I too have the problem of not being able to drive down certain streets where I know I can get something yummy unless I know I have time to stop.

  4. I won’t lose weight if I keep reading your blog! LOL

    I have been looking for these cookies since I was a kid. A bakery called Guentert’s that my family would frequent in the 80s had these cookies, they were my absolute favorite. Unfortunately the bakery closed down and I have not been able to find this recipe anywhere. At least now I know that someone else is making them! Thanks. :)

    We just got back from a five week stay in Germany. I would love to have the recipe for the raspberry macaroon cookies. My husband loves these cookies. Thanks! Judy
